Serge has exhibited his photography at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Phoenix Museum of Art, Schroeder Romero Gallery in Chelsea, and The Leica Gallery (New York City and Tokyo) among many other national and international solo and group exhibitions. In 2011 Princeton University Press published a book of Serge’s photographs made during his yearlong photography fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, along with essays by Institute members. Serge’s magazine photography has been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Life, ESPN The Magazine, Marie Claire, Stern, and The London Sunday Times Magazine among others.
In 2015, Serge was awarded Special Recognition for “The Fire in the Freezer” by the Dorothea Lange-Paul Taylor Prize out of Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies. A copy of the self-published limited edition book was purchased by the Laura Volkerding Collection at the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, Arizona. He has also received awards from PDN, The Magenta Foundation, American Photo Magazine, Curate NYC, and The Photo Review.
Serge lived in New York City for his whole life… until moving to the Sonoran Desert –Tucson more specifically– where he earned his MFA at the University of Arizona. He currently teaches photography at Tohono O’odham Community College in Sells, Arizona, and writes book reviews and does portfolio reviews for LensCulture.
Serge has attended artist residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Jentel, VCCA, AS220, and was a participant in The Eddie Adams Workshop.
Serge has been on the faculty at the International Center of Photography in New York City for over 14 years where he was a seminar leader in the documentary/photojournalism program and taught street photography, editing, portraiture, and several other courses.
In addition to his photography, Serge is a writer and enjoys sketching. He is an avid outdoorsman and relishes any opportunity to hike through the desert, climb a mountainside, rappel through a canyon, and whip up a Backpacker’s Pantry buffet with a good group of friends under a remote nighttime sky.
